  I liked it   but found it to be alot of reading from your officiant(laruen?)

if this is what you want then go for it and perfect!

I personally didn’t want that.

I wrote our ceremony too so I understand!

I personally thing that you tune out so much and are in dream world to make sure your guests are enjoying it, paying attention and dont  zone out.

but that is just me.

hope you get some more opinions cause I’m wrong alot ( don’t tell my husband that!)

Personally, I found the reading to be a bit boring.  Maybe that’s just the way it reads and hearing it being read would be different.  But it almost seemed lecture-ish.

I would take out the part below because I don’t think your marriage vows are an appropriate venue for a polarizing statement that could offend some of your guests.  I’m personally glad that MD voted for gay marriage a few weeks ago, but not everyone is.  I think a statement in your program is a much more tactful way to show your support.  Plus, your vows are about you and your husband’s commitment to each other, not anyone else.

It is undoubtedly for these concrete reasons, as well as for its intimately personal significance, that civil marriage has long been termed a “civil right.” Without the right to marry — or more properly, the right to choose to marry — one is excluded from the full range of human experience. And the right to marry means little if it does not include the right to marry the person of one’s choice.”

@soontobeMrsBoo:  We wanted to make some sort of equal rights statement without being too in your face about it, so we used this – 

GROOM and BRIDE, this celebration is the outward token of your sacred and inward union of hearts, which the church and temple may bless, and the state make legal, but which neither state nor church can create nor annul. It is a union created by your loving purpose and kept by your abiding will. It is in this spirit and for this purpose that you have come here to be joined together.

@soontobeMrsBoo:  I hear what you’re saying about making an acknowledgement that you two are allowed to marry, but many people you love don’t. Sounds like making that statement is really important to you. But that section, I think, is too long. I didn’t even make it through reading because it was so dry. If you want to include that social statement and acknowledgement, I would recommend shortening it. As a past poster mentioned, the day is about the two of you and your specific relationship. As for being together for a long time and this wedding being more of a change for the outside world, I completely hear that too! That’s an opinion I share about my own wedding, and I think you’e essay piece captures that lovely and personally (I may even bookmark it if you don’t mind- it made me tear up!! Although I too am terrified of ugly crying at the alter lol)
